Greetings from cloudy but really warm Pittsburgh. It's in the high 50s here today. This is not the night before Thanksgiving. It's more like mid-spring.
A few blurry, fuzzy sights. Consol Energy Center:
-Montreal's Carey Price has at least one fan here:
-Pascal Dupuis graces the cover of tonight's "Ice TIme:"
-Given the supposed "Ice TIme Curse" that has sprung up this season, we imagine Dupuis will come down a terrible case of athlete's foot and will be sidelined two-to-three weeks with a "lower-body" injury.
-Some sights around the arena. An Ulf Samuelsson jersey:
-We so wanted to fight these two idiots:
-Why would you ruin two perfectly good Patrick Roy Canadiens and Avalanche jerseys?
-A Toronto St. Pats jersey:
-The Maple Leafs were briefly known as the St. Pats early in their history. And given the Habs-Leafs rivalry, this is not a jersey foul.
-The Canadiens always travel well. A Saku Koivu fan:
-Anything that combines the Smurfs and the Habs' injury woes, we're all for:
-This Zdeno Chara fans proudly proclaimed himself to be a "Canadien-Hater:"
-The Bruins-Habs rivalry comes into play here as well with jersey fouls.
-A t-shirt jersey of the formerly great Mike Zigomanis:
-Who else but Jeff Jimerson would handle the national anthems:
-The Penguins' scratches are Alex Goligoski and Tyler Kennedy who is apparently no longer on injured reserve.
-The Canadiens' scratches are Jaroslav Spacek, Georges Laraque and Andrei Kostitsyn.
